“The Straightest Way to a Great Smile”

Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners treatment straightens your teeth without wires and brackets by using a series of clear, customized removable appliances called aligners.  It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone knows that you’re straightening your teeth.

“Clearly Different”

The Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners system uses advanced 3-D computer graphics technology to precisely calibrate and manufacture a sequence of custom aligners designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final positions prescribed by your orthodontist.

Each aligner is worn for one week and only taken out to eat, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually, week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained.

To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners. Dr. McSurdy is comfortable with treating a wide range of malocclusions with Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners. He is an Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners Top 1% provider and dedicated to offering only the highest level of care.

Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners treatment, along with Dr.McSurdy’s guidance, can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted!

Why Choose Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners Treatment?

Who wouldn’t love to have a straighter, more beautiful without it being obvious you are receiving orthodontic treatment? Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners treatment has “clear” advantages over traditional braces. Here are some of the biggest advantages:

  • Discreet Treatment: The biggest advantage of the Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners system is that it utilizes a series of clear aligners that are less visible than traditional braces. This allows your life to continue on normally and will provide you with more confidence with your smile throughout the duration of your treatment.
  • Better Oral Hygiene: Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners are removable making brushing and flossing more simple, essentially the same as without treatment. Traditional braces require special floss threaders and more vigilant oral hygiene efforts to keep teeth clean and free of decay-causing plaque.
  • More Comfortable: Most people report Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners as being more comfortable than traditional braces. While you’ll feel some initial discomfort, the treatment feels much less uncomfortable than the regular tightening of metal wires and brackets.
  • Fewer Office Visits: While you’ll switch to a new aligner every two weeks, that doesn’t mean you’ll need to come into the office that often. With some planning, you can receive several sets of aligner trays at a time.
  • Eating Freedom: With Invisalign® & 3M Clear Aligners treatment, you’ll take out your aligners while eating or drinking anything besides water. This gives you freedom in food choices without worrying about damaging any orthodontic appliances.
